Have just pulled the update down my self, and the installation seemed to go well. The update has resulted in the following error: “Unfortunately, VirusScan Mobile has stopped.”, and with the options “Report” and “OK”. Regardless of pressing send or OK, the same pop-up appears half a second later. Power of and on have not help.

I don’t know what to do right now to get rid of the problem. The device is useless right now.

If you think about upgrading, I would think twice before jumping into the update. Might be better to wait until more success stories appears ;)

Update: Acer Denmark was not able to help (unless I would return it). I succeded in getting into the settigns menu and killed the VirusScan Mobile, so I am able to use it for now (until I have to reboot it :))

Also just installed it - Mobile Virusscan was a bit annoying to stop because the FC message pops up in the foreground like every second, leaving you unable to proceed, so you gotta be quick to get into app control...
I deactivated it and switched to Avast! which I already have on my SGS2 and am quite happy with.

That done I must say I'm a bit disappointed performancewise, I don't really have the feeling it got any faster or more fluid. :(

Awesome! I also got the update, but will this wipe all my current apps and stuff?

Edit:
I read after searching (hehe, sorry, replied too quick), that OTA updates never wipe the installed apps and data. It only updates system related stuff.

Edit2:
Phew, download is SLOW!
Edit3: Sorry, it's not slow, it's fast, but the tablet was almost out of range of the router.

I got the update too in Germany.

My download was quite fast though. No it doesn't change anything in your userdata.Apps and settings are the same.

For me it seems much smoother in the first 5 minutes i checked it out.

Big improvement as far as i could see.

Nice surprise :)

Unluckily when I start a manual search for updates, I get the following error meaasge: "System update is not allowed on your device".

Haven't tried it before, because there was nothing to search for. I think it's due to rooting the device, right?

I used method 2 from this post.

Any ideas how to get the update working?

------------------------------

With temp unroot from OTA RootKeeper I can manage to search for an update, but there seems to be nothing available for my device until now.
(Installing might fail anyway due to the patched kernel.)

The A500 ICS update. Also not push to all peoples at the same time.
So I thank DE JB version also like that.

Remember the "Power MANAHEMENT" update?
Also push to DE version first, than FR. and US will be the last.
And HK version need to wait one more month later.

What this update does

The update installs the following stuff:
- JB, obviously. Which includes changing the time font, Recent Apps and colour of the soft button pressing (gray instead of blue).
- Google Chrome.
- Acer Cloud.
- Google Currents.
- Google Voice Search (Google Now).

The update installs the following widgets:
- Google Play Books (doesn't seem to work).
- Google Play Music.
- Play - My Library.
- Play Recommendations.

It Improves the touch experience greatly. Note that the option in the Settings is set back to "Normal", you can change it to "High" but it doesn't seem to be necessary.

No other languages are added.
Google Play Store doesn't seem to be updated. I still need to download the full app after an update.

All the apps start and shut down fast, only the launcher doesn't seem to work that smooth anymore. Maybe try another launcher like Apex?
Also, I can't seem to expand the notifications. Long pressing the notifications shows an option to open the app info.

    So I got the OTA request times recorded with tcpdump.
